Brixton Market’s acclaimed handroll bar Temaki is hosting a special dinner
TEMAKI, Shaulan Steenson’s acclaimed sushi spot in Brixton, is the place to be on 26 April.
Steenson’s CV includes stints at Hakkoku and Sushijin, two of Japan’s most respected sushi restaurants, and, for one night only, he’ll be drawing heavily on that experience for a 20-course omakase dinner entitled, somewhat inevitably, “One Night In Tokyo.”
“Omakase,” it says here, translates roughly as “I leave it up to you” meaning diners put their faith in Steenson’s abilities which, frankly, sounds like a pretty safe bet. Diners at TEMAKI’s intimate counter will be served a selection of dishes drawing on influences from Kyoto and the Japanese countryside, and an extensive menu of sushi influenced by the Edo style traditional in Tokyo.
Dishes include gilthead bream and crab with dashi, Saba Bo Zushi (a mackerel sushi from Kyoto), and sashimi of cuttlefish and brill. Plus, obviously, 17 others.
